Excluded MPGs don't run!

Reiner Hi,
I want to integrate MPGs in my eBook. They are to large - so I exclude them. When I start my eBook, they don't run (I've copied them into the eBook.exe-directory).

This is my script:
<embed SRC="#@{app}\15.mpg" width=352 height=288 autostart="true"></embed>
I've also tried ## and #! .

What must I do? Is there a List of all ActiveScript-Commands - I didn't find it?

EBookCompiler In your HTML, you can use ##, #!, #@ in HREF= and similar places that will cause navigation (the viewer to go to a new page)

SRC= in the EMBED tag won't cause navigation, so this is why it doesn't work.

In any case the stuff after #! ## #@ is supposed to be Activ Script commands, and this isn't

So there are 2 problems in the code.

A list of Activ Script commands is in the Reference section of the Help.

BTW there are even more commands, in the optional add-on product atwww.ebookpower.comand these are documented separately in the help file that comes with that package.

Enable the preprocessor (double click on the HTML file in the Files tab, and check the option), and try in your HTML code
<embed SRC="[={app}]\15.mpg" width=352 height=288 autostart="true"></embed>

Reiner Cool, it works with "Enable the preprocessor (double click on the HTML file in the Files tab, and check the option), and try in your HTML code
<embed SRC="[={app}]\15.mpg" width=352 height=288 autostart="true"></embed>"!

Great work! Thanx for the fast answer!
